linux requirement #

sudo apt-get install webkit2gtk-4.1

Windows #

Requirement #

The backend of desktop_webview_window on Windows is WebView2, which requires WebView2 Runtime installed.

WebView2 Runtime is ship in box with Windows11, but it may not installed on Windows10 devices. So you need consider how to distribute the runtime to your users.

See more: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/concepts/distribution

For convenience, you can use WebviewWindow.isWebviewAvailable() check whether the WebView2 is available.

Attention #

The default user data folder of WebView2 is your_exe_file\WebView2, which is not a good place to store user data.

eg. if the application is installed in a read-only directory, the application will crash when WebView2 try to write data.

you can use WebviewWindow.create() to create a webview with a custom user data folder.

final webview = await WebviewWindow.create(
  confiruation: CreateConfiguration(
    userDataFolderWindows: 'your_custom_user_data_folder',
  ),
);
